Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Day 9

Another fantastic tag today from Tim but I didn't have either of the dies he used (shhh, don't tell but I've ordered the rosette die now, I gave in.....)

So I hand-folded this one and actually, it worked really well!

 I used the same colours for the tag as Tim, but used glimmer mists in walnut gold and honey amber, and a hero arts background stamp.
Instead of tinsel, I used angelina fibres behind the rosette, and some more of the pearls from my former necklace.  The ribbon is actually self coloured with wild honey distress and glimmer mist (honey amber, I think) but the flash makes it look whiter than it is.

I used some randomly chosen buttons from my stash and had to hand-draw (badly) the letters for "peace" but I did have the core-dinations paper. They look better in the picture here than in real life.... 

All in all, I really like the tag - I would have used chip letters but didn't have any small enough as it would then look much neater. I decided not to buy the alphabet die (so far.....) as well!





Artyjen is away for her birthday, but the link for the splinter group is still available here - check the other tags out.
